Watch the Moving On Rhythm online guitar lesson by Mark Wilson from Blue Grooves

The guitar doubles the bass pattern in the classic style of the early 60s blues players. This tune illustrates the influence blues had on rock-and-roll. The tone and feel of this rhythm is reminiscent of the pick-up of Led Zeppelin's Black Dog featuring Jimmy Page whose own soloing style was also very blues influenced. Visit Jimmy Page at
